Indigenous supporters of Canada’s oil and gas industry turned out in force Sunday in Lac La Biche, to make the point that the sector plays a vital role in their lives.
Whitefish Lake First Nation's Rene Houle said the energy industry generates spinoff businesses that employ hundreds of people in his community — with the money that’s earned spent at car dealerships, movie theatres and other businesses in neighbouring towns.
After the indoor portion of the event, dozens of trucks hit the road in a convoy similar to the two in the Edmonton area in recent months.
The Rally in Lac La Biche, began with performances by Indigenous drummers, singers and dancers, as well as Metis jiggers from Amisk Community School on the Beaver Lake Cree Nation.
